The year is 2143 CE, over thirty years since the Great Unification of humankind. After being kicked out of the Space Commonwealth transport fleet on disputed charges of gross incompetence, one Captain James seeks out a new life by purchasing a cheap refurbished spacecraft on Pluto, the titular Rover. He is soon also lumbered with a free android "inducement" - the peculiarly named Peter Gans Lee - and by the arrival of a rogue hologram worker, little do any of them realize what their new life is going to bring them in a hostile, and deeply absurd, universe...
Pilot Episode, Undocumented Features: Discharged from his cushy job as an official transport captain, James heads to Pluto to buy a cheap refurbished spaceship, plus android assistant, ignorant as to what is lurking within the Rover's computer system...
